RAH Hertfordshire Schools Gala Performance – 11th March

On Sunday 11th March, we took 50 singers to perform as part of the Herts Gala performance. The event featured over 1000 performers from primary and secondary schools, as well as the Herts County Youth Choir and Symphony Orchestra. The main event was a specially commissioned piece, by Will Todd and Michael Rosen around the story of Icarus. The matinee performance also featured Leona Tindall in Year 9, performing one of her own songs. The finale involved all the choirs singing David Bowie’s Starman and a stunning version of Final Countdown with all the singers, dancers from Sandringham, the symphony orchestra, synth and the famous RAH organ! It was an incredible event to be part of and we are really proud of all our musicians. Well done all!
